So much makeup, so little…inspiration? I personally always have a hard time pinpointing what kind of ‘look’ I’m going for when leaving the house, often resulting in me wearing a cute dress…with my tough, water-proof snow boots. Whoops. I love YouTube makeup tutorials for this very reason! I also wanted to show you guys a few looks that I put together for various Valentine’s day ‘plans’. So, in case you were lacking some v-day makeup inspo, read on!
Got a hot date? Good for you, you lucky thing! Keep it sexy and simple with a muted eye and vibrant lips. Finding a good red for your skin tone is important here, so make sure to check out this handy guide before committing (to a color, not a man). Also a good tip: pick your favorite feature and flaunt it. We all have bits we like and bits we like less (ahem, stomach), but showcasing your favorite body part helps to make you feel confident and sexy. I love my shoulders and clavicle, so I went with an off-the-shoulder top from H&M and a low bun.
To get the look, trace your lips with a red lip liner and fill with your lipstick. Place a kleenex over your lips and brush translucent powder on top with a large powder brush, which will help the color stay all night (and longer..hehe). Add mascara, a little blush, a mattifying powder, and wait for your date to start drooling.
For this look, less is (actually) more. Make your skin look like it’s under an Instagram-filter with a good foundation, topped with some blush on the apples of your cheeks and some bronzer on your temple and jaw-line. Sweep a little bit of nude or taupe eyeshadow on your lids and fill in your brows to make them full and beautiful. Remote + a bowl of popcorn + cozy blanket = best night ever!
